Equiangular lines are an elemental part of geometry. Mathematicians have discovered a tighter limit on the number of such lines that exist in every dimension.
In order to fully understand the quantum world, we may have to develop a new realm of mathematics.
When a German retiree proved a famous long-standing mathematical conjecture, the response was underwhelming.
The simple Möbius strip illustrates a deep mathematical challenge that has long tormented the field of symplectic geometry.
When two mathematicians raised pointed questions about a classic proof that no one really understood, they ignited a years-long debate about how much could be trusted in a new kind of geometry.
The ancient study of an object’s curvature is guiding mathematicians toward a new understanding of simple equations.
Can you turn a two-dimensional fractal into a 3-D object? Break out your scissors and tape for a chance to win a 3-D printed sculpture.
By folding fractals into 3-D objects, a mathematical duo hopes to gain new insight into simple equations.
Mathematicians have had a hard time finding commonalities in large groups of random shapes — until recently.
